    Happy to find this group as I have recently began "keeping chicks". Purchased a small flock of 14 rare breeds from MPC. Hubby has converted the old pump house into a hen house and we are now working on the chicken yard. Love to recycle, upcyle and re use, as our hen house shows. Pics at a later date.
    I have been inundated with all kinds of information on Pinterest and found some really great ideas on feeders, watering systems, etc . Now it is time to broaden my horizons and find out information about the chicks.
    Been married for 35 years as of Sunday. Our son is 30 and divorced, no grandkids and one lovable Chinese Shar Pei, Karma.
    Looking forward to learning a lot!

    Early congratulations on your anniversary. I have a 30 year old son, single so no grand children either [​IMG]. Not even a grand dog. [​IMG] I had my son when I was 38. [​IMG]
